INDI FILM develops, produces and co-produces high quality documentaries and feature films and works successfully with young talents as well as established authors. Our focus is on creative documentaries demanding in both content and style. With our documentaries we don’t want to report about, but experience matters of different regions, cultures, and perspectives.
Founded in 2001, based in Ludwigsburg and Berlin INDI FILM has produced over 20 feature length documentaries some of which were international co-productions. We have worked with some of the top TV broadcasters in Germany like ARD, ZDF, SWR, RBB, WDR, 3SAT, and ARTE. Several productions have been released in cinemas and were awarded at international film festivals. Latest documentaries include One Who Set Forth – Wim Wender’s Early Years, by Marcel Wehn, Berlinale 2007, Bastion of Sin, by Thomas Lauterbach, winner of Golden Dove at DOK Leipzig 2008 and Neukölln Unlimited, by Agostino Imondi and Dietmar Ratsch, winner of Crystal Bear at Berlinale 2010 and nominated for the German Critics Award 2010.
In 2004 producer and co-founder Arek Gielnik participated in the leading European development programme EAVE, which formed the foundation for the development of feature films. Currently, INDI FILM has four promising feature films in development, one of them being “Still Memories” in co-production with Zephyr Films London.
In 2010 the company has been awarded slate funding by the EU MEDIA programme.
INDI FILM is a member of the German Producers Alliance – Film & Television.
